What is "Rooms"?
Rooms is a refreshingly innovative "slide puzzle" game in which the player slides rooms into various combinations to help Chris (the hero) find an exit. This puzzle element was fused with various problem-solving gimmicks for an elegant, stimulating combination.

Story
Chris lost his way on a day of wandering, and found himself trapped in the mysterious world of "Rooms." In order to return to his own world, Chris must unscramble a jumble of rooms in Rooms Mansion, and wit his way through various obstacles scattered throughout to collect Golden Puzzle Pieces--the ultimate key to his escape.

How to Play
1. "Rooms" is composed of multiple puzzles, which themselves are composed of multiple rooms.
2. As the player, your role is to slide the rooms right, left, up, and down to guide Chris through them, and eventually to an exit.
3. The rooms have a diverse range of objects or "gimmicks" scattered about such as ladders and keys, which you'll have to help Chris use to his advantage on the way to the exit.
4. Once you have guided Chris to an exit and through the door, the stage is clear, and a new one awaits your challenge.

Details & Bonus Elements
- 80 stages in total
- "Time Limit Mode" and "Challenge Mode" are also available after clearing the game.
- Trophies are awarded for clearing various bonus challenges.

Game Center Support
The "Rooms" application also supports Game Center.

This looks like a very interesting take on a slide puzzler

I just bought this and played through the first few levels. So far, the game is incredible. The best way to describe it is a point & click adventure in the pieces of a sliding block game, such as Cogs. There is tons of content and trophies to unlock which is great. The only downside is that the graphics are a bit blurry.
